8:32 am
been pushed into putting something on paper because the democrats are painting you as the party of no, and no ideas, and now you do give them something to aim at. >> but i have to say, there is nothing in here that is very specific, quite frankly. and that's one of the criticisms of it, or very important. it's lower taxes, less government spending, smaller government, more of a basis on the constitution. every law would have to -- this is one specific new thing which is obviously an appeal to the tea party, any specific law would have to say what in the constitution allows it, permits this law to be passed. nothing tarriblely shock -- terribly shocking. it won't help republicans, but it won't get them in trouble. >> and one of the things they were picking on is that you would put a freeze on federal hiring. it sounds good, but even people that think the government is
8:33 am
over loaded, they appreciate some of the government functions. >> this may not be a governing document as much as it is a political document. there are a lot of things when we'll talk with john bay nor and be the next speaker he'll be our exclusive guest at the top of the hour and there will be a lot of things to ask him about. i think this is more of a political document and that a governing document and to say we'll stop the increase and size of the government is a pretty popular notion to have. >> i agree with that's what people want to hear. i know you'll have on steny hoyer as a counter point to that, the house majority leader. chris, do you see this pledge being used as a -- will it play out in campaigns? will they ask people to use it? not like having to sign a contract, but think they'll go in there and say i agree with this. >> no. i think this is a way to deal with a problem that they were
8:34 am
seeing as the party or they were being accused of being the party of no. if you're a republican right now, i want to make this as little about yourself and as much as possible about the president, the democratic congress, and the economic conditions in this country. unemployment is high, deficits are huge. growth is slow. that's what you want to talk about. you don't want to talk about your agenda. >> chris, we look forward to that debate that you're going to have this morning. so thank you so much for your time. >> thanks, melanie. >> and you can catch fox news sunday at 10:00 a.m. right after our show. heavy rains caused landslides in venezuela and other cities. 7 people were killed and dozens more were hurt. some were trapped when cars were submerged with mud. crews are still trying to rescue in victims from that. and we're going to go to

8:40 am
>> i was thankful and grateful that there was a bus i could take. i was driving to work and then had to put my car in the shop. >> reporter: in the city of falls church, virginia, one of the options is going away. the city's clean diesel george bus was environmentally friendly when it started running routes in 2003. >> it's a tough decision. >> reporter: the city manager said a loss of partial state funding for the service left the council with few choices. >> the city of falls church is not alone in that, but in looking at ways to reduce expenses, george had to be part of that discussion. >> reporter: starting september 27th, george's run is over. >> it will effect a lot of people that were counting on that bus. even though it may not have made a lot of stops. >> reporter: it's a small service by most city standards. just four buss to cover the 2.2 square miles. still most residents say they appreciate george, for its
8:41 am
safety, reliability and for low fares. >> it's a great service but it just can't compete. value is good. it's 70 cents cheaper for a ride. >> reporter: residents will still have metro bus to take them to and from train stations so they won't be stranded. >> everybody in the city is within a quarter of a mile of a frequent bus service. >> reporter: they are still losing a source of pride and george becomes just one more bit of wreckage along recession road. >> well the four george buses were paid for with a federal grant so the city is transferring ownership to arlington county and they will be used in the arlington rapid transit system. well as the skins prepare for the rams, the biggest and most expensive player sounds off. we'll tell you what was on big albert haynesworth mind when he speaks, it always is controversial. right, gwen? >> absolutely. and we have rain on our mind. talk about a temperature drop. wait until you see the five-day forecast. i'm going to have the details.

8:45 am
one of the top stories this morning, the hunt is on for a hit-and-run driver in montgomery county. witnesses say a speeding driver hit a 44-year-old woman just after 8:00 last night in the 8700 block of carol avenue in silver spring. woman was then thrown under a parked pickup truck. the victim is in critical condition. well conditions are certainly improving here. i have to tell you, i was amazed at how hot it was over the weekend. it wasn't even enjoyable. >> i know, friday and yesterday. temperatures just well off the charts. they should be nowhere near where they were. but i don't know, mother nature is giving us a little tease of the middle of summer it seemed like as opposed to the end of september. >> i didn't like it. >> i know. let's take a look outside. we have clouds on the increase. i'm sure you're finding it very, very overcast out there. if you stepped outside or
8:46 am
peaked out then your right. clouds are streaming in, a mile a minute. and it's all ahead of wet weather that we'll have that is already invading some of our neighborhoods into the course of the morning and some seeing a few sprinkles. it will continue. we've had 67 days at 90 degrees or above and we've kind the record for a record-hot summer around here. but there are cooler day as head in my forecast. more rainfall moving in. boy, do we need that rainfall. and unsettled days into the beginning of next week. so be prepared for that. but yesterday, as melanie said, it was hot outside. look at these numbers. 93 degrees at national airport. 93 breaking a record at dulles and baltimore hit 91 degrees. we had more 90s across the board and more records broken. 95 degrees, a new record for martinsberg. 93 at charlottesville and 93 at culpeper. so exceptionally hot. temperatures some 17-20 degrees warmer than they should have been and today we'll go the
8:47 am
opposite. we'll head 17-20 degrees cooler than yesterday. it's 67 right now at national airport. 67 at gaithersburg. 59 at frederick. and 64 to the south at culpeper. 65 in fredericksberg. keeping an eye on the tropics still but things are getting better. matthew expected to dissipate into the next 24 hours. but in the meantime, unfortunately for southeastern mexico, they are getting torrential rainfall through here. it is expected to finally weaken and die out. so hang on there. so other than that, not much else happening with it. the rain just hitting that area really badly. on the other side, tropical depression lisa, moving off to the atlantic. and no warnings or watches and it will weaken and dissipate over the next 24-48 hours. now let's take a look at radar. at home, things are a different story. we're starting to get a light rainfall. this will increase into the course of later on tonight. but right now some of you
8:48 am
seeing some sprinkles but off and on through the day this is what we'll end up dealing with. there is a wide swoth of rain and this moisture coming in the gulf of mexico will stream it's way up into our area into the course of today and by tonight it will be heavier. as we go to the weather maps then what, we're talking about is a frontal system. that frontal system is to the south of us. pretty stalled out. and as we move through tonight, we'll see the heavier, steadier rainfall, cooler air behind the front and that's how we get the temperature drop. and then into monday, we'll end up seeing this moving to the north as a warm front and we have a chance of some thunderstorms in our forecast. we're talking about a period of rainfall through tuesday night. so be prepared for that. here is a look at your five-day forecast for you. we are talking about temperatures really cooling down. look at this. that's not our five-day forecast, that's our two-day forecast. we'll show you that later on. but monday thunderstorms, tuesday the same thing. melanie.
8:49 am
>> thanks, goo mean well the burgundy and gold head out on the road for week three. they take on the rams in st. louis and a little bit of tinkering going on leading into the game. dave ross is here for a preview of the matchup. is it fair to say tinkering? >> that's a good word. news use of "tinkering." they did make some moves. receiving brandon banks last night to sign running back ryan torain from the practice squad. but that pails in comparison to big al. he doesn't peek -- speak very often but he decided to talk last night and speaking on the fan, the 100 million-dollar man addressed the whole money issue, saying, and i'll paraphrase and you can read the entire quote, just because somebody pays you money doesn't mean that makes you do whatever they want. that means everything is for sale. i mean, i'm not for sale. yeah, i signed the contract and got paid a lot of money but
8:50 am
just because that doesn't mean i'm for sale or a slave or whatever. stay tuned. i'm sure there is much more to this story in the coming days. there always seems to be with this guy. now with college football. danny o'brien getting his first start for the terps. second quarter they are down 7- 0 but look at this throw to williams. brilliant, corner of the end zone and we are tied at 7. move to the third, tied at 21 and o'brien will go up top for torii smith. and easy on the celebration. it comes up. still okay. the terps win 42-28. how about the hokies in chestnut hill visiting boston college. first and goal for tech. busting it in the end zone. tech up 7-0. now end of the first half, very interesting scenario here. dave shinski is the quarterback. they have no timeouts.

he has to score or get out of bounds. he does neither. they go to the half, and they have nothing and the home fans are nothing about that. and they are more bummed about the third. tyrod taylor using his legs and then throw it deep. 59 yards to danny coal and he will lead his way around defenders setting up a field goal. the hokies shut out the eagles 19-0. the first shutout for tech since 2006. it's now time for off the wall. the part of the show where i change my time and take off my jacket and go mano amano with off the wall. so worth further ado, let's go off the wall. >> welcome to the off the wall with wisdom martin, dave ross. >> we have a big show today.
